Thanks, I figured as much. That was just an example. What about the other tens of thousand missing recordings that just disappeared overnight. I would find it hard to believe they all were rights issues.

Is there anything we can do to help you? We are a non-profit and were were using them for research for many community programs.

if they were 45s they were likely removed due to rights issues.
